Why I'm standing

We recently moved to Queenstown with our young family, and I would love the opportunity to represent the other young families and creative entrepreneurs. My belief is that we are guardians of this land and my vision is to speak for the future we hold in trust for our children and our community. My desire is to cultivate common sense through shared conversations and uniting around core principles and shared values.

My priorities
  1. Leadership as a service to community. Form an engaged and humble team of councillors.
  2. Inspire people to remain in the region by working to meet their needs.
  3. Offer our region as a living breathing example of what working together can achieve.
About me

I have two core principles transparency and symbiosis. I believe that when they are at the foundation of how we meet and organise, we create an opportunity for a prosperous future for all involved and engaged.
